I went to the hospital at 7AM this morning to see Anya before her chest closure. She was wide awake and looking around!! The procedure was a little over an hour, and was done right in her room, and my mom and I waited in the family waiting room. I was a little nervous when I saw the "ecmo cart" roll in the room, but I know it was just precautionary. After her chest was closed, she had an xray and then I could go see her for a few minutes. They asked me to leave the room after a few minutes because her central line in her neck was leaking and they needed to replace it, and that took at least another half hour. I stayed with her for a little while after that, then got to chat with my heart mom friend Sarah and see her 2 month old baby girl :) Anya was sedated for the procedure and they told me she would sleep all day.

On Friday Emoree had Pre-K orientation!! She loved it and didn't want to leave. Her first "full" day (9AM-11:45AM) is on Tuesday September 4th.
